FTEJerez is approved by the UK CAA to conduct English Language Proficiency (ELP) testing and has also developed an Aviation English course to enable potential cadets to obtain ICAO level 4 standard.
FTEJerez has also been approved by AESA to assess Spanish and English for both pilots and controllers.
I enrolled on FTEJerez’s Intensive Aviation English course in order to improve my aeronautical vocabulary and overall fluency. The confidence I gained when communicating in English was invaluable, especially during the AFOP’s Ground School, allowing me to achieve an ICAO Level 6 on completion of my training – a big advantage when attending my first airline interviews that led to my current job as a First Officer. The course also introduced me to the campus, the students and the actual ATPL course, which was also of great help."Gonzalo Comendador First Officer at Vueling
In March 2008 it became a legal requirement for all pilots flying internationally to hold a minimum ICAO level 4 in English.
FTEJerez developed a unique testing system and in April 2010 became the first organisation to be formally approved by the UK CAA to conduct English Language Proficiency (ELP) testing.
As well as being at the forefront of English language testing, FTEJerez has developed an Aviation English course to enable potential cadets to obtain ICAO level 4 standard. FTEJerez tests all non-native speaking students on integrated courses as part of the course fee. This, together with in house Radio Licence testing (RT), ensures that all FTEJerez students who graduate meet all licence issue requirements.
For those cadets who have an insufficient level of English, FTEJerez can offer a 11-week Intensive Aviation English course delivered at our campus.
The starting dates for the next Intensive Aviation English Courses are:
|English 01 2017: 16th January – 31st March.|
|English 02 2017: 03rd April – 16th June.|
|English 03 2017: 17th July – 29th September.|
|English 04 2017: 02nd October – 15th December.|

Our test is approved by the UK CAA and AESA and, as such, is accepted in all EASA member states, plus many other countries.
The test takes approximately 35 minutes and it is a face-to-face test that is able to assess all levels of the ICAO rating scale from 1 to 6.
Candidates will be required to come to Jerez for the test. The total cost of our test is €175. You can pay in cash or by credit card the same day of the test.
You will receive your test results within 2 weeks. If you are successful, you’ll receive a certificate through the post and, should you be unsuccessful, you will be allowed to retake the test after 1 month.
It is also possible to offer the test in other regions of the country for groups of at least 12 candidates. Would you be interested in this, please contact our Training Advisors for more information.Contact us
